and this fight has moved from northern and west africa to great britain and the united states. the chairman of the house foreign affairs committee called this a growing radical movement and supports the offensive and he is outfront tonight. thank you for taking the time. i appreciate it. the islamist military commander who we spoke to said they demand an end to the war to release the hostages. we are hearing this attack has been in the works before the french formalal involvement. should the united states be negotiating with these al qaeda linked groups? >> here is the difficulty and you have done great reporting on this. for the last six years this particular al qaeda affiliate has been taking westerners hostages and have been using this for bargaining power. they then use the monetary ransom in order to build their organization. they are also freshly supplied from some of the weapons that they picked up in libya. so we have a situation, frankly, where i think we have to hope that the french foreign legion forces and other forces engage and make very quick progress. i say that because once
. and the united states strongly condemns these kinds of terrorist acts. it is a very serious matter when americans are taken hostage along with others. >> reporter: it all began when 20 armed islamic militants, believed to be affiliated with al qaeda, approached a group of oil workers. the attackers were reportedly heavily armed, driving in three unmarked vehicles. the oil workers were on a bus headed to a nearby airport. there was a fight -- security forces for the workers battled back. when the smoke cleared, at least one foreign worker was dead, others wounded. the terrorists then headed to the compound where the gas refinery workers live. while it is unclear how many foreign workers they seized, sources say it could be as many as 15 to 20. along with the americans, there are british, norwegian, french and japanese workers, too. the attackers claim this is retaliation for the french-led invasion in the african nation of mali. the french are trying to stop an al qaeda-linked group from taking over that country. algerian troops have now surrounded the gas field where the hostages are being held,

"the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt live in our newsroom tonight. jonathan, good evening to you. how can they carry out or did they carry out this attack that we believe? >> it appears, bill, to have been pretty well planned. these terrorists first attacked a bus carrying workers from particular gas facility. that's when a british man and a norwegianen were killed apparently. police forces, algerian police forces beat back that attack. then those militants went to the gas facility that you are looking at right here they went into the living quarters. they managed to get in pretty easily apparently and took these dozens of hostage that. tonight we understand from the algerian interior minister that algerian min

it is grounding the dreamliner. the new 787 has run into trouble. six of the planes are flying for united airlines. good evening. i'm dan ashley. this is obviously a big blow to boeing. the f.a.a. says united cannot fly the planes effective immediately. the latest scare after a flight from western japan to tokyo was forced to make an emergency landing when someone smelled smoke in the cockpit in the cab bin. the emergency landing convinced two japanese airlines to ground all of their boeing 787s and because of that some bay area travelers faced confusion today trying to fly to asia. amy holyfield has more from san jose international. >> passengers hoping to climb aboard the new dreamliner in san jose instead were told the flights have been grounded. the ana airlines spent time with each traveler getting them booked on other flights out of other airports including sfo. they also provided shuttles to the new flights and hotel rooms if it necessary. >> actually we don't know what happened but as long as the problem is solved it is fine. >> japan airlines and ana decided to ground the new 787s known a

unconstitutional measure, edict, that's being issued by the president of the united states. we need to send a clear message to the federal government that we're not going to continue what we enforce what we believe to be unconstitutional laws. >> different issue, same words. states' rights. back in the 1950s and '60s, local police often stood by and refused to enforce new civil rights laws. now, some conservative sheriffs say they'll refuse to enforce new gun control laws from washington because they may consider them unconstitutional. today's conservatives aren't opposing the right of our children to go to school. but they are standing in the way of our children going to school safely. that's why president obama is proposing these strong, common sense solutions to gun violence. >> that most fundamental set of rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. fundamental rights that were denied to college stunts dents virginia tech and elementary school students in newtown and kids on street corners in chicago. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> we're all responsible for protec

and communities across the united states of america need to understand that this is going to be hard, tough, long and la boroborious, but it going to be worth it. >> congressman moran, i read on bloomberg that there's an estimation that come 2015 flash flood there is no legislative change, there will be more deaths per year in this country than deaths as a con discrepancies of road traffic accidents. they're anticipating 33,000 gun deaths as compared to 32,000 as a consequence of road traffic accidents in 2015. these statistics are just mounting by the day unless somebody decides to take some kind of action. >> you're absolutely right, martin. it's inevitable that we will have over 30,000 deaths every year, 10,000 of them homicides, 20,000 suicides or accidental deaths, mostly children getting hold of a loaded firearm in their home. this is going to continue to happen, and many of them through massacres of innocent young babies such has happened in newtown. it will happen if we don't take action. >> and yet, congressman, i hear larry pratt, the executive director of gun owners of america, saying

. the united states of course as i mentioned, we saw in 2012 how terrible it was in so many parts of the country. droughts over the last decade. virtually all the regions of the country have been affected. of course, if any of you live in washington, d.c., we are seeing we just haven't had much of a winter. just haven't had the snowfall because it's been way too one. historically, what has been this country's approach to drought management? what is our current level of preparedness do you feel for any severe drought that's going to happen in 2013? >> thanks, veronica. first of all, how many of you are aware that we are still in drought? that's good. building awareness is really a key to driving to address this issue. historically the way we dealt with drought in the united states, this is really true globally, is to what's commonly referred to as crisis management. it's amazing that drought, even though it takes such a long time to develop, sneaks up on people. so it's commonly referred to as a creeping phenomenon. so it's hard to know when the drought begins. it's also difficult
in history of lgbt right in this country. in a few months our united states supreme court will be deciding a number of cases that at their core go to the very question of whether or not we as members of the lgbt community are equal under the constitution and under the laws of this country. and what a better time for the city and county of san francisco to send a message that recognizes the dignity and humanity of this community, by dodging the contributions of one of its heroes harvey milk. that is what this is about. my proposal to name this airport is the first airport named after an openly gay person we are in no way trying to diminish the work and accomplishments of other individuals who are also deserving of that honor. this has to be viewed in the context of what is happening in this country and in this world. it has to be viewed in the context of history. one of the things that i have learned about my term on the board of supervisors is that time flies. time goes by very quickly. i am now beginning my fifth year as a member of this board. and the decisions that we make are import
of residential units. it's about protecting existing housing and preserving affordable housing, and rent control housing. the 2009 update to the housing element at a policies to retain existing housing and protect the affordability of the existing housing especially rental units. these updates discouraged demolition, conversion are merger of existing housing but the current .code criteria does not have preference for assisting housing or consider affordable housing. also will consider whether replacement units are provided, and whether they are of similar affordability. this ordinance does not change the requirements for mandatory discretionary review; this ordinance will not affect -- or any other project with a development agreement. little background, supervisors -- had considered a one-to-one replacement for the most housing but that is prohibited by the palmer versus rent control board. the planning department will soon have more current statistics as well. this language brings into conformity what our goals are around the housing element and how we can best preserved housing. that is im
the lead. they say they won't negotiate with the hostages, but clearly you have the united states, the british, other countries all there contemplating rescue attempts. we don't know yet what exactly they would do. but the u.s. does have a lot of assets in the region. it's possible they could be thinking about some kind of rescue operation. right now algerians are surrounding the compound. >> all right. elise labbot this morning, thank you very much. >>> president obama's call for new legislation to reduce gun violence is receiving a cool reception on capitol hill. on wednesday the president unveiled a list of proposals including a ban on the sale of assault weapons and instituting background checks on all gun sales. he released his proposals one month after the massacre in newtown, connecticut that killed 20 first graders and six adults. >> if there is even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we have an obligation to try. >> athere are many members of congress who believe gun control laws are an attack on their second amen
